5500 gallon backyard cichlid pond

Short underwater footage showing cichlids in a 5500 gallon backyard pool converted into pond.

Almost 10 years ago an article titled Raising Cichlids Outside by Greg Steeves was added to the library. At the time, a 400 gallon kiddie pool was turned into an outdoor cichlid pond. Since then the kiddie pool was upgraded to a 5500 gallon above ground pool.

As seen in the video, the pool is stocked with Pseudotropheus demasoni, Labidochromis caeruleus, Neochromis omnicaeruleus and Copadichromis borleyi to name a few of the species. If you are interested in finding out about the filtration and setup used in this project, check out the YouTube video on the setup. Make sure to leave Greg a comment!
